Tales Of Rails Al Partanen Gets Kinky

The kinked rail in Milwaukee that you took Kevin to, you tried to grind it back in the day, right?

Yeah, I think the first time I tried that rail was around 1995. I had been talking to Muska on the phone. I went to take a picture of the rail to show it to him and I was, like, “Fuck it; I’ll try it.” I got through the flat and jumped out. I couldn’t get the balls to commit.

I was a little sad to see that no one in Petaluma was “bickin’ back bein bool.” And yet, when Grieves took the stage I was transported to another world. One where hip-hop and culture are a nation without borders and there is the promise of transcendent unity in booty shaking. All it took was flow, and heart and Grieves had them in abundance.

Dress Up

"Punk fuck hardcore skate punk thrash Austin Texas”—eight words that perfectly sum up the eccentric (read: controversial) four-piece outfit, Dress Up. Comprised of vocalist Alex Bond, guitarist Anthony Sardella, bassist Max Fitzgibbon and drummer JoJo Williamson, Dress Up is band of skaters who just happen to cross dress at every performance. Bond explains, “We have fun doing it and that’s exactly why—as skaters—we thought it was cool to eliminate the masculine vibe you would expect from us. Our main message is having fun and doing what you want.” Bond had some time in between shows to talk “Drug Abuse,” the band’s moniker and one of their wildest shows.

They’re back. Trapped Under Ice has returned from their hiatus with a series of friend-packed tours promoting their latest drop Heatwave, a track-after-track explosion of positive energy. I caught up with Justice Tripp (frontman) and Brendan Yates (drums) for the first half of this interview and slowly but surely, the rest of their members, Jared, Sam and Brad made their way into the green room before their Los Angeles show.
